Complete beginner needs help with Imbalance 2!

    Hi there,

    I want to remove the date, comment option etc (all the meta) from the homepage of my Imbalance 2 theme site deekrecordings.wordpress.com

    I have read forums based on the same problem and everyone has said just enter this into your CSS style sheet

    .entry-meta {
    display: none;
    }

    I have paid for the Custom Design option on WordPress and then when I go to edit the CSS there is nothing in the editor. Is that correct? How do I know how to start the stylesheet? Whereabouts do I put this code in. Is there a specific order? When I put it into the editor just like that and with nothing else in there, nothing happens. I'm guessing I am doing it wrong.

    PLEASE can somebody explain in very basic language what I need to do
    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is deekrecordings.wordpress.com.

    Yes, that is correct. At WordPress.com, you do not edit the existing stylesheet, you add new CSS that overrides the existing.

    All the popular modern browsers have developer tools built right into them to help you find the CSS that controls the styling of all the different page elements. Below I'm including some useful links to our support documents on editing CSS here at WordPress.com, as well as a link to our support page which has some brief screencasts to get you started using your browser's developer tools to find the CSS.

    How to find your theme's CSS

    I see that you have some CSS in your custom CSS right now, so it looks like you are on your way.

    One thing I'll note in case you do not know is that CSS is theme specific, so if you search for solutions, solutions for different themes typically will not work. Look for solutions for the theme you are using.

    And, we are here to help you with any questions you may have.

  3. Hi SacredPath,

    Thanks for your help. I worked it out in the end!

    I have just one more question - I want to remove the

    "Share this", "Like this" and "Leave a reply" options from the site -- both from the Pages and the Posts.

    Is there some CSS customisation I can use to achieve this?

    Thanks!

  5. You can hid the sharing buttons with css.

    div.sharedaddy {
    display: none;
    }

    But I'd suggest deactivating the buttons in your dashboard. Go to Settings > Sharing scroll down to the "Show Buttons On" options and you can turnoff all the sharing.

  6. +1 for deactivating them with settings, you can turn them on or off on a per post basis too. Here's how:

    • Go to Posts in the main dashboard and open a post that is displaying shares and like
    • Click the "Screen Options" tab at the top right
    • Make sure the "Likes and Shares" option is checked
    • Scroll down and look for "Likes and Shares" below the editor
    • Uncheck "Show likes"
    • Uncheck "Show sharing buttons"
    • Save the post
